Lunar Lullabye was created because the reason for the insomnia sometimes dictates a different blend of herbs. Our Moon Song is our daytime tea for 'that time of the month,' but some of the herbs in it are energizing, and thus it is not a good choice for easing the insomnia that can happen alongside the rest.
Lunar Lullabye takes the most important herbs for menses, and adds in some herbs to assist with sleep and relaxation.
The taste is a light mint, with an almost nutty base.
Maggie's Fogcutter is a Rosemary Sage tea blended for improving mental clarity, focus, and memory.
This tea was blended for a very dear friend. She had gotten to an age where she was worried about her mind. Fear of mental deterioration trumped all the other fears that age can bring. She'd noticed that she was losing track of things more often, and felt like she was more forgetful. After a number of conversations with her, I blended this tea.
She started using it immediately and faithfully, and thanked me many times for the results it brought her.
Melonie's Wish was blended because a friend of a friend was facing the kind of health issue that knocks you over hearing about it, much less confronting it.
This was a delicate tea to blend. The herbal toolbox has a long list of things to use for healing and helping the liver and kidneys and cleansing systems generally. The difficulty for this tea is that most of them are overly potent in action for a system that is near complete failure. To add to the complexity, the medications used once you are that ill have long and intricate lists of side effects and interactions.
It took many hours of research into the medications and herbs for this tea to be created. However, the end result is a gently supportive tea for the body's cleansing systems that will also help with many of the side effects of the pharmaceutical medications used for when those systems are close to shutting down.
Migraine Mitigator was born out of a phone call from Mister Tea, and it also has the honor of being the tea that started us down the path of creating Desert Sage Natural.
A friend of his from work was experiencing one of his infamously bad migraines. These migraines came with a long list of triggers, including a lack of ability to drink hot beverages. So I was given the challenge of making a tea to calm the head pain, while avoiding all of those triggers. I checked a couple things to be sure of efficacy, and blended the original version of this tea. The effect was pretty close to miraculous for him, and has been for Mister Tea, as well.
I added the black tea later, as a catalyst, and because caffeine is not a trigger for anyone who uses the tea here.
Later on, as our initial blend gained a wider audience, we created a couple of variations on the blend. One is a blood-thinner safe version, listed as our "alternate." The second was created because I received a message that said something like, "Your Migraine tea sounds amazing and I love the feedback, but peppermint is a trigger for me, so is there anyway you could make one without peppermint." This became our Cinnagin version.
Moon Song was initially blended because I have a lot of complications to 'that time of the month.' and for a very long time it was something I dreaded. My partner decided we should make a tea to ease my issues, and it has become very helpful for other people as well.
Moon Song is a minty black tea with some herbal highlights.
There are two different variations on this tea, on of them contains Willowbark, which is the herb that aspirin is based on, and the other, which subsitutes Crampbark.
New Hope is a tea designed to help with reproductive health and fertility, for women. The taste is an earty spicy rose. It is actually on the list of medicinal teas that are tasty enough that I wish I could drink them.
A good friend of mine was looking at her last chance to actually have a little girl. She was worried about her chances to conceive, and I was worried about her ability to survive conception. She asked me for a tea, and I blended one to assist with both sides of the issue.

Oculus Reparo is one of two tea blended because of a degenerative eye condition Mister Tea suffers from. When we discovered that there were no longer any valid options surgically, I decided to see if I could blend some teas to help improve his eye health. The companion tea, Oculus Reparo Nervus, focuses primarily on the health of the optic nerve and on improving neural transmission. Oculus Reparo is a tea for general eye health.
The flavour centers around the blueberries and the green tea, with some earthier highlights from the other herbs in the tea.
Oculus Reparo Nervus and the companion tea Oculus Reparo were blended in response to a health issue Mister Tea has been dealing with for years. He has a degenerative eye condition that may end in blindness. In the interim he suffers from migraines, debilitating doublt vision, and a fairly long list of other issues.
This has been a difficult thing for both of us, especially as we were unaware that there might have been a surgical solution until after the timeframe it might have helped had passed.
As is typical these days, once I had an understanding of what was going on medically, I started doing research to see what I could do to improve his situation.
Oculus Reparo Nervus focuses on the healing and general health of the ocular nerve, with some herbs for general eye health in the mix as well.
